For nature lovers, this will be a great place to be. After the tough trekk, it is simply heaven to arrive at this waterfall.
Deep inside the virgin jungle of Sarawak, lies this 30m high waterfall. Trekking up the river takes about 1.5 hour. This altitude is around 250m above MSL.
The waterfall is visible miles away on the access road. Water is clean and fresh. The waterfall is so high that we are not able to make our way up from here. It is said that from here up, there are 4 more waterfalls, and let us hope that will be another adventure to come.
I am not able to get closer to shoot, due to water mist in the floating air spraying on the lens.
Five of us in our trekk group.
I hope you can give feedback. Thank you for viewing.

I can almost feel the spray sitting right here. Nice detail in the rocks and the lady gives it dimension. Thanks for sharing!

Good inclusion of the person at left to provide scale on the waterfall at right. Well framed, & a logical choice of a vertical format. Tfs!

A very nice close up shot. The person in the photo gives a sense scale and therefore the height of the fall. Lighting well managed.
I would like to see a bit more on the right in the composition, without cropping out the waterfall at the top right and show more of the pool below.

Superb image of nature. The cascade is captured perfectly. It is apparently a beautiful place, probably very touristic. Good work.
Have a good day

this place is truely a beauty. I like your composition with the water flowing diagonaly through the image and the lady placed in the lower left to provide the reference of size. The upper part migth be somewhat overexposed and requires either a ND grad filter or an underexposure of the image for a later rescue on PP.
Looking forward to see more shots of this place.

Wow! Waht an amazing place! You have chosen an excellent POV, the fall nicely fills most of the image and the girl is very well positioned, giving a touch of life and a good sense of scale. Good light control in a difficult situation - many of us wouldn't be able to deal so well with the shadow and the sun on the top.
TFS, Regards, José.

you choose the right pov to show the beautiful power of this waterfall. The human presence on the left add a nice and important perspective and a focal point to be focused on. Quality seems to be ok!
Thanks for sharing and regards

Wonderful shot of the heavenly God's creation. Another God's living creation composed here, was giving this shot a stronger impact. Well done, Bill.

first of all I must thank you and express my deep appreciation for your concern on my photos. You have given me very good tips, advice and guides in improving my shots. Yes you are. There are a lot of things that I need to do. There are also points that I waited for people to comment as I realised the obvious flaws I had done. In this case the horizon, post production and so on. I really take your suggestions seriously and I dont really mind your criticism. They are parts of improvement. Again thanks.
It is going to be a long essay here. Im a new starter in this digital world especially digital software. I hope I can improve very fast.
As for your photo, indeed it is very captivating. Light balancing and the pov and exact exposure make yours very convincing.
Thanks a lot again, I hope you will continue to comment on my pshot.
NB : you have been very polite in commneting my posts. I know that. That is the beauty of you, though we just hardly know each other.
